Signing up to be an artist isn’t such a great deal, when you’re alive that is. The art world is based on death and scarcity of work. Most artist live poor when they’re alive and sell their work to price sensitive clients ,Van Gogh is a classic example.
So why do we continue down this path? We love what we do it’s as simple as that. Sure at times we wish we were in a better paying profession or our work sell as soon as we finished make it, we’re good at our niches. Personally there’s nothing else I rather do so I’ll keep persevering with my unique niche.
